Tsuge's Gunjin: The Samurai God

Postby KevinP » Thu Mar 03, 2016 12:16 am

Oh this is good. Really good.

I'm not the biggest Virginia guy around, although there are some blends I really like. I'm more into latakia blends, but this one I like a lot. It's a category I call 'Virginia plus'-- Virginias with something else, which isn't perique. Here it has Orientals and a small amount of black cavendish. It all comes together to form a unified taste that I find very appealing and unique. Ultimately, it's a slightly modulated virginia taste in a ribbon cut. Very rich and intriguing.

Not too moist but I plan on letting it dry out a little next time.

Have the rest of the series plus the spring one. Looking forward to trying them.

I was very impressed with Ryunjin (sp?), the Dragon God blend. I really should get the sampler pack of all four of the god series.
